Description

Based on the original opera by Guiseppe Verdi, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida is a classic tale of love, duty, and the choices we all face. Aida, a Nubian princess, is captured by an Egyptian captain, Radames. He soon falls in love with her and saves her from a life of hard labor and instead gives her as a handmaiden to the Egyptian princess Amneris, his future bride. Set against a backdrop of loyalty, betrayal, and forbidden love. Aida is the story of three people who are forced to make difficult choices that will alter history forever.
